TSM gets lost walking to tournament site in 19 degree (F) weather. They tried to cross 4~6 lane highway to get to tournament site but apparently decided it was probably a bad idea. Probably should have taken a taxi.

Apologies for the fail screenshot :[
- They're looking at M5 as the biggest challenge after M5 said "We're only scrimming TSM to get viewers"
- Says SK not as strong a competition as M5.
- Says "M5 is going down in the finals."
- Confirms TSM move to EUW servers to improve gameplay.
- Believes aAa will come out on top in Group B
- "Saving special tactic for M5 in the finals"
